    he Lenten service on 18/03/2020 will go ahead as planned. The group that gathers is only a small group, with no/minimal contact between people. To reduce contact, we will ask people who aren’t within a family group to spread throughout the chapel and will refrain from greeting each other with physical contact. The chapel is not being used by Concordia Lutheran College at this stage, but is still going to be cleaned according to the Colleges already high standards. If you are concerned about your health, we ask that you don’t attended the service tonight.

    If you don’t attended, but still would like to pause and meditate at that time in your own home, the readings the we will be focussing on are: Psalm 102 and Luke 22:39-46. Our Lectio Divina focus will be on Psalm 102:25-28. The four steps of the Lectio Divina are:
    Lectio - Listen for a word or phrase that strikes you.
    Meditatio - Ponder the word or phrase that stood out to you.
    Oratio - Pray in response to what you have been reading and Pondering.
    Contemplatio - Let go of all thoughts and rest in God. Simply be silent in the presence of God. 

    We pray for Gods mercy at this time.
